RECORDS of births, deaths and marriages dating back to the middle ages were put on display at a Dearne church as part of a heritage weekend.

Scores of visitors from as far away as Surrey and Staffordshire, came to All Saints Parish Church in Wath to look at records dating back to the 1600s. 
Vicar Sue Hobley said: “We had a great number of people visit to trace their family tree and to look into the history of the area going back centuries.”
